  1. Well done to your DD. I've heard really good things about them and it sounds fantastic, although I don't have any personal experience. My dd was going to audition but she's been given a place on the CAT scheme at Northern so we withdrew her application. Good luck in your decisions.
  2. About 4 years ago dd1 was on the reserve list, she was number 8 of 16 which her teacher found out when she rang for feedback. A place didn't come up but the following year she got straight in. My youngest dd has been put on reserve for associates this year, but I'm assuming she's been taken off it as she has been given a CAT place which we've accepted. Good luck to your dd, what I've learnt from the ballet world is to just keep trying!
  3. I'm sorry Sparkly, but like you say there's always next time. My Dd tried for a couple of different schemes last year but got a no for both.
  4. Had a letter about CATs yesterday, my Dd has a place. Hope you get a good news letter today Sparkly xx
  5. Good luck to your DD Sparkly. I'm glad I'm not choosing for the CAT, I thought they were all lovely on Sunday.
  6. Dd loved the recall weekend and is really hoping for a place, we've just found out that she's made the reserve for an associate, does anyone know if it's at all likely that she could still gain a place on the CAT scheme? Which is what she would prefer.
  7. Thanks, just wondering on my just turned 11 dd odds! Although I don't know how many they've recalled for the final.
  8. Hi, just wondering if anyone knows how many children they take into the first year of the CAT scheme? Thanks
  9. Also, Excel dance academy in Castleford, they're on Facebook. Quite a new school, but excellent.
  10. When my dd was a year 6 JA, we were told that there were 2 or 3 (can't remember exactly) extra places for girls going into year 9 and the same for boys.
  11. Thanks everyone,think I'll get the just ballet one, she'll like the picture of the dancer in the middle!
  12. My soon to be 10 year old dd would really like a turn board for her birthday but her teacher isn't keen on the idea for her just yet and has suggested a wobble board instead. Has anyone got any suggestions on what would be a good one for dancers? Thanks.
  13. That wasn't the case last year at my dd Ja centre. Out of 15, 2 boys and 13 girls, 5 girls got a MA place, 3 girls and both boys got swl and the other 5 girls got a no. One of the girls then went on to get a place off swl.
